Energy Upgrade California!
The County of Los Angeles has created the Energy Champions program to encourage non-profit organizations to promote the Energy Upgrade message for the good of our communities and the environment, while serving as an innovative way for non-profits to raise money by introducing energy efficiency upgrades to homeowners in the area. KPFK Radio would like to be YOUR Energy Champion – and when you upgrade, the radio station is supported as well!
As an Energy Champion, KPFK will “champion” the cause of saving energy by reaching out to our community network, by generating interest and providing information about residential energy efficiency rebates of up to $4,500. Eligible homeowners can be members, donors, sponsors, family, friends, or neighbors of an Energy Champion’s organization, who will identify KPFK 90.7 as their Energy Champion as they go through the “Energy Upgrade California” program. Los Angeles County has set aside over $3 million in incentive funds for Energy Champions, and there is no limit to how much money each Energy Champion may earn. The program will last until all funding has been dispersed.
Energy Upgrade California is a statewide program, adopted by Los Angeles County, to help homeowners:
• Receive up to $8,000 in rebates and incentives to offset the cost of a home energy upgrade
• Save money by reducing utility bills
• Improve indoor air quality and personal comfort
• Increase a home’s value based on the higher demand for energy-efficient properties
KPFK will receive $100 for each Basic Upgrade and $500 for each Advanced Upgrade completed by a homeowner that provides KPFK’s energy champion ID# PAC085 during the application process. There's also the new Flex Path Program and KPFK will receive $100 for each program completed. These funds will be reserved at the time a participating homeowner starts an energy upgrade and will be sent to KPFK when the energy upgrade is completed. Go to the Homeowner Action Form (HAF) and insert KPFK's energy champion ID number.
More details about the program Energy Upgrade California (Los Angeles)…
Energy Champions are acting in a marketing capacity for Energy Upgrade California Los Angeles. The above listed payment of $100 or $500 to the Energy Champion is not a charitable contribution. The payment is earned from their marketing efforts; therefore this Energy Champion must be responsible for introducing you to the Energy Upgrade California program to receive payment. This program prohibits the selection of an Energy Champion after you have met with a contractor.
